The UGLEE Ergonomic Pen Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Remember the days when you could go online and buy a pen that wrote well, looked nice, was super comfortable and never resulted in hand cramps? No? Me neither. Well, that is until now; a couple of days ago I received a package from UGLeePen with 3 pens for me to test. They call it the World's Most Comfortable Ergonomic Pen.

Before I opened up the packaging, I made sure to read some of the statements on the front and back of the pack:

One of the most prominent claims was that you could write all day without cramping or strain. That's a pretty strong statement to make and I intended to see if that would hold up. One thing you should know is that my daughter is pursuing her Masters degree, which means lots of writing; who better to try the pen than her? So I gave the pen to her and asked her to let me know how she liked it. I, of course, kept another pen for myself and wrote with it throughout the day. 

Today, the results are in. My daughter told me this was one of THE best pens she has ever used. She loves the texture and feel of the finger grip and said that she didn't feel any strain or cramping in her hands. The one thing she wishes she could change though was the size of the pen tip-she would prefer it to be smaller. However, besides this minor point, she loved it. 

My own review is very similar. My first thoughts at seeing the pen was that contrary to the name, I actually thought it was pretty unique. I love the design and think it's rather charming. 

Initial tests proved that it's very easy to write with-the ink flows smoothly and like my daughter said I didn't feel any strain or cramping as I wrote throughout the day. Also, like my daughter said, I LOVED the finger grip. Have you ever walked into the stationary aisle and seen those pen packages that say "feel me" and the grip looks extra squishy, but you touch it and it's actually just firm rubber? Well, this is nothing like that-the grip is very squishy and for a big kid like me this was a huge positive. The grip makes it easy to write with and very versatile. Now, these claims aren't just pure conjecture-there is a science behind the design of this pen, which you can read about here

The ink comes in 3 different colors: blue, black and red while the pen comes in a variety of colors: red, blue, green, pink etc. According to their website, the pen is great for those with arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome as well as children who are just learning to write. It's also perfect for those who need to write for long periods of time like students or note-takers. 

All in all, I loved this pen and would recommend it to everyone (even those of you who might not use pens that often-this might just change your mind).
